A variety of wall tiles titled Memory Fragments are all about the thoughts we tell ourselves and stories we share with others via recollections pulled from the corners of the mind. Surface treatments include layers of sgrafittoed text. Words are power. They give strength to a piece, and when combined with gesture they elucidate experience. Colorants include under glazes, stains, oxides and graphite.
